Las Vegas voters passed a new charter for the city government on Tuesday.
Or did they?
According to city election results, 56 percent of voters supported a 35-page document that would serve as the city’s new constitution.
But local attorney Danelle Smith said she believes that at least 60 percent needed to back the charter to make it a reality. She pointed to a provision in the four-decade-old existing charter that requires a super-majority of 60 percent to pass charter amendments.
